The Trump/Corker Battle Rages On

WASHINGTON, D.C. – It seems that Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is not content to fade away into the sunset before his self-imposed retirement. The Tennessee senator made multiple appearances on morning shows to again bash President Trump, with stiff counter-punches coming over Twitter from the Commander-in-Chief.

From Fox News:

“President Trump and Sen. Bob Corker reignited their feud on Tuesday, exchanging a series of digs after the retiring Republican lawmaker ramped up his criticism of the administration and its policies.

“Sen. Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the U.S. has done,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “He doesn’t have a clue as the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddle’ Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!”

Tuesday’s war of words began when Corker, R-Tenn., the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, blasted Trump on morning shows on ABC and NBC.

“Bob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldn’t get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cuts,” Trump tweeted following those interviews. “Corker dropped out of the race in Tennessee when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump. Look at his record!””

Corker chose not to run for re-election in 2018, likely because he would not survive a primary challenger. The senator formerly compared Trump’s White House to an ‘adult daycare’ and said Trump’s foreign policy was likely to start World War III.

With his recent attacks against Trump, Corker suggested the president was debasing the nation and indicated he would not vote for him again in 2020.
